African American Health Program

Also Known As: AAHP

The African American Health Program (AAHP) was created and funded in 1999 by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The mission of AAHP is to eliminate health disparities and improve the number and quality of years of life for African Americans and people of African descent in Montgomery County. The program focuses on health and wellness while targeting six major health areas- maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, oral health, cardiovascular disease, cancer and mental health. Included in the services are outreach, health education, support groups and nurse case management services. While the program's offerings are available to all interested residents, the focus audience is the African American/Black residents of the county. The program is staffed by Registered Nurses, Nutritionist, Diabetes Educators, Health Educators and Community Health Outreach Workers.
